Regional Archives of Nijmegen have acquired a collection of 684 pictures of Allied soldiers who were involved in the liberation of Nijmegen in World War II or who were stationed at Nijmegen afterwards.

To view these and/or see further information please click on any of the following links:

2. More information on the project:

3.  Website Regionaal Archief Nijmegen:

A few years ago the Regionaal Archief Nijmegen instigated the project "Liberators on Film" and published these photos on their municipal website.

Back then, they received a lot of information on the military units to which some men were affiliated, such as the Royal Artillery, the Coldstream Guards and the Dorsetshire Regiment.

From May 2012 all photos have now been moved to the more user-friendly "Flickr-page" of the Regionaal Archief Nijmegen.

Using tags, the collection of photos can now for example be sorted and browsed by regiment. But the identity of many of the photographed soldiers is still unknown.

Everyone is free to add comments and additional information on our Flickr-page. In this manner, we hope to collect more information on the soldiers that were photographed during the liberation of Nijmegen.

We would like to ask you if you could further communicate this initiative and help us establish a wider outreach, for example by publishing about Liberators on Film in any newsletter or posting our call for aid on affiliated message boards or social media. Our goal is to receive input from target audiences like World War II veterans, family members of veterans and military experts.

Any form of assistance would be most welcomed
